God Matters in Australia…

Dr Peter Vardy has just returned from a busy 2 weeks travelling around Australia with our “God Matters” conference…

St Hildas 2

 

Following events in Sydney, Brisbane, Hobart, Launceston, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth (as well as two “bespoke events” on the Sunshine Coast) we were lucky enough to receive the following comments…

Once again our students enjoyed a rich experience with Dr Vardy. Two students in particular were inspired… For myself, I found the new material on feelings of commitment to be a valuable extension of Dr Vardy’s capacity to engage. The questions of self-creation and responsibility emerged naturally and clearly from the intellectual propositions on God and the ethical life. Dr Vardy’s capacity to take students from the adolescent worldview and invite them into the meaningful world mediated by great minds and irresistible questions of human living is matched by no-one I have encountered in education.  Dr Vardy expects and receives attentive minds who open up to the intellectual and moral questions that exist in the lives of those present. Personally, I always feel that I am receiving a personal tutorial…” Geoff, Ballarat, VIC

Thanks so much for yesterday’s Brisbane conference.  I thoroughly enjoyed it, and my students got a lot out of it too.  I was surprised at how well they coped with the fast-paced, uni-level information.  Please pass on my thanks to Peter, too.  It was a rare opportunity for me to sit under such great teaching.” Ruth, Brisbane, QLD

I wanted to express my thanks for the conference at St Hilda’s in Perth on Friday. It was fantastic to see my students being so inspired and so enthused about the subject by Peter’s unique style… personalities like his bring so much status to the subject and help to significantly raise the profile of a new subject area to WA.” Andrew, Hillarys, WA

Could you please pass on our sincere thanks to Peter. As we have come to expect, his lectures are engaging and inspiring. Peter is a true educator – he first invited, and then lead, each one of us (students and teachers alike) out of our current state of ‘knowingness’ into a new and more nuanced state of awareness. I am sure that each and every one of us left the day with new insights, understandings, and perspectives. It is our real privilege to have such a brilliant educator visit us.” Susan, Hobart, TAS

As in the UK, we were able to give students copies of “God Matters” by Peter and Charlotte Vardy, which were much appreciated by everybody.  When we gave out “Ethics Matters” last year one teacher wrote…

They are relishing the Vardy resources I use with them. We get into trouble each week because they do not want to leave and go to their next class. We are arguing as I physically push them out of the room. They catch me when I am moving around the school with “But!!!!” Highlight of my week.” Lorraine, Perth, WA

Peter will return to Australia in August 2014, taking our popular CPD event “Contemporary Issues in Focus: Medical Ethics” to major cities.
